Roof Crack Ticklist.

Postby megmay » Mon Oct 01, 2012 10:17 am

For all the steep crack fetishist lurking in the shadows - how about a RRG roof crack ticklist? I didnt see list in the old forums and these types of things seem to be the bread and butter of other couch spray sites. This exercise is of course not acturally for the sake of climbing, but purely for the sake of wistful wannabe spray. These first few float to mind, but what else can yall drag from the depths of obscurity?

Boogered! I've been wanting to check it out for plenty of years now. If you get to it before me, let me know what you think! It looks/sounds awesome. If it weren't for all those distracting sport routes... :)

I was eyeballing that in the guidebook a few weeks ago, if you ever need a partner let me know, I would love to try it.

Is the Battlement roofy enough? Maybe to bust into the roof business slowly... Close Encounters... Jungle Beat...

actually, not to toot my own horn (so to speak), but Strongyloides out at Choco is pretty damn roofy and fun too... if you're into that kinda thing. Also the crux on Next Day Air is a cool roof move lock-off to a slammer fingerlock, but I wouldn't really call it a roof crack, per se.

The Battlement's ruffier than a fratneck gay bar. Close Encounters' roof start can be skirted if you're tall enough (5'7"+).

Thunder Chicken's got some roof action. And the Quest too.
Does he have a strange bear claw like appendage protruding from his neck? He kep petting it.

Two really fun OW roofs. Dirty up top and no anchors right now, but will be fixed up in a couple weeks.

Hop on Pop looks intimidating. RRCGuide/?type=route&id=1580
Dopler Effect is pretty good.
Days of Rage is not a roof climb.
